sieve definition and meaning

What is a "sieve"?

A sieve is a kitchen tool used for straining or sifting dry ingredients or separating solids from liquids. It typically consists of a mesh or hole-filled bowl-shaped container with a handle or rim for support. Sieves come in various sizes and mesh sizes, allowing for different degrees of straining or sifting, from fine to coarse. To use a sieve, you place it over a bowl or another container and pour the mixture or food item into it. The mesh or holes allow liquids to pass through while trapping solids or larger particles, resulting in a refined product.
